I read somewhere recently, -- probably in a devotion, I read a lot of them! -- that the power of TOUCH, can do a lot for someone that is hurting. Just a simple arm around the shoulders of someone who is hurting can do wonders for them. Or even just a hand on their shoulder!
Jesus was a "toucher". He used the "power of touch" over and over again while He was here on our Earth. There are numerous verses that tell of his healing touch ---
Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!" Immediately he was cured of his leprosy. -- Matthew 8:3
He touched her hand and the fever left her, and she got up and began to wait on him. -- Matthew 8:15
Then he touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith will it be done to you"; -- Matthew 9:29
But Jesus came and touched them. "Get up," he said. "Don't be afraid." -- Matthew 17:7
Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him. -- Matthew 20:24
The list goes on and on. All throughout the Gospels, there are stories of how Jesus touched others, and how they came to Him to be touched. Of course, those of you that know Jesus are saying.... "Well, Jesus had the power to HEAL through His touch." --- Yes, this is true. But, I am telling you..... you ALSO have the power to heal through YOUR TOUCH! It may not be the same sort of "healing" that Jesus can do, but for someone that is hurting... your touch DOES have the power to heal, as well!!
May you have a blessed day, and be sure to look for those who need your healing touch today!
